in a team project but not document Y, while another software developer
involved in the same team project may have access to change both
documents X and Y. Assigning groups helps to establish the various

tasks. Team project settings also include the virtual hierarchical
groupings for artifacts within a team project. The classification
structure may include the life cycle iterations that make up a team
project and the components or features of a team project. Work items
and other artifacts such as test cases, may also be classified against
the structures/hierarchies to make for easier tracking and reporting.
